Incluye alimentación, ropa, enseres personales, colegio, atención sanitaria y una vivienda digna en la que poder crecer. Todos estos gastos van incluidos dentro de la pensión de alimentos y se tienen en cuenta para establecer su importe

Extracurricular activities, uninsured medical expenditures, and educational expenses are generally not included in the basic child support amount unless expressly stated in the settlement agreement, however state regulations differ. Food, clothes, and housing are generally covered through child support.
